In Olympic Infighting, the Koreas Take the Gold
International Herald Tribune
Their bilateral relationship is in enough disrepair that North and South Korea will not be marching together three weeks hence, during the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Summer Games in London.
They’ve done it before, though. The crowds at Olympic Stadium roared their approval when the two teams marched together under a blue-and-white flag to open the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney. It was the first time they had joined together since before the Korean War started, when a single “Korea” competed at the 1948 Games, also held in London.
